the solitude of the hours spent alone; 





Or through hours spent sharing laughs, songs— a good discussion.

And we grow not only with people of our own age 
But with people of an age that can teach. 





through guidance, understanding, and knowledge . . . in and out of the classroom 



And we grow together; as a class. 




questioning, answering 




writing, speaking.

A nd no matter what our part may be, we will wel- 
come the opportunity, take it, and use it. For we are 
a generation of doers, of experimenters, and we wel- 
come challenge. We have the potential of no other 
generation that has passed before us. Education, his- 
tory, and the exciting world we live in gives us this 
capability. We are aware of our power, and through 
it, we question beyond answering. And we shall con- 
tinue to question . . . for here lies our greatness. 
And it is to us, to the potential that is ours, and to 
the tomorrow that is ours, that we dedicate this, the 
1968 FALCON.

Pete Skrzyniarz 
President 




When vou, as a class, walked through 
the doors of Minnechaug, we, as upper- 
classmen, were as apprehensive about 
vou as vou were about us. The first few 
daws were confusion— 330 Freshmen 
lost, bewildered, and trying madly to 
organize themselves so that they might 
become a part of the school. Activities 
and sports began, class officers and stu- 
dent council members were chosen to 
represent your part of Minnechaug. 
Now that first year is ending; you look 
forward to three more of many new 
trials and errors. But this time vou have 
one more thing on your side: you are no 
longer Freshmen; you are no longer the 
underdogs.

Class Of 1970 

Two years have passed. Two years that 
you can now see only as memories; the 
Christmas dance, the magazine drive, 
and the first year on Varsity athletic 
teams. But now there are two more 
years. What will become of your class? 
As seniors, we know the sadness of say- 
ing goodbye. You cannot help but re- 
joice at the prospects of what is ahead. 
With two more years left, a class with 
great potential can become a class of 
leaders and workers, ready to become 
some of the finest Minnechaug gradu- 
ates ever.

Mike MacMillan 
President 




Class Of 1969 

The beginning years are over, and the 
plans are being made for the senior 
year. With the great success of the One- 
Act Play Contest, you have shown us 
your ability to be serious, demanding, 
and involved. And you have many oth- 
er talents, displayed in still other fields. 
Next year you will lead the Varsity ath- 
letics, the publications, the social and 
organizational life of Minnechaug. 
Time will go fast; the big questions will 
come— college, the service, a job? . . . 
Your senior year should be the greatest. 
Let it be.

the new ad on the wall in C corridor?" "What do 
you mean the Student Council doesn't do 
anything." 




A coke break seems great to Barry Morgan.

Student Hostesses Work as 
Guides and Usherettes 
Throughout School Year 



"Student Hostess" says the little green button; isn't it 
usually "We try harder"? However, no group has ever 
tried harder to please than the Student Hostesses. They 
guide lost Frosh in the opening days of school, and be- 
wildered parents during Open House, explaining that 
there is no "A" corridor and pointing out the direction 
to "H" wing. They also usher at school functions such as 
plays, musical programs, and graduation.

Quick Thinking Is A Number One Requirement On The 
'68 Chess And Debating Teams 



Each year the Debating Team works specifically on one 
problem. "Should Congress establish uniform regulations 
for criminal investigation" is now being discussed, and the 
affirmative team must come up with propositions while the 
negative side must be able to think quickly and discover an 
argument for each. With these requirements, the Debating 
Team has come to be an intelligent group of on-the-spot 
thinkers. 



It takes more than just quick thinking to be a 
member of the '68 Chess Team. Practice and 
skill are also needed and Mr. Salk makes sure 
the team gets the skill through competing 
against each other for a place on the team. 
This competition has been responsible for the 
Chess Team's successful season.

'68 FALCON 

Undergoes Major Changes 
in Effort to Improve Quality 




"What the FALCON staff actually needs is an office, B-9 just won't contain all that activity,'' some- 
one once remarked. B-9 is usually filled with FALCON editors, members of the staff, and photog- 
raphers. Lights flash as photographers check their hook-ups; the staff members search for erasers, 
green proportional wheels and rulers. Meanwhile, the editors shuffle through piles of preliminaries, 
triplicates, and hundreds of photographs. This activity may go on until well after five when there is 
a deadline coming up soon. When the yearbook finally comes out, no other people in the school are 
quite as pleased as the FALCON staff. But, never surprised; thev knew all along what a great year- 
book it would be.

Gone was the large paper. In its

and clear; the articles were more con- 
cerned with indepth and behind the 
scenes reporting. This change in for- 
mat was the result of planning by 
Editor-in-Chief Paula Kmetz and her 
staff.

Juniors Sweep Play Contest, Capture Most Awards 



The cast of the Junior one act play did a fabu- 
lous job in "The Wall". They conveyed the 
tenseness of the drama so well that their play 
was chosen Best Play. Individuals such as 
Henry Boyer who received Best Actor, Denise 
Mediavilla, Runner up Best Actress, and Lynn 
Rourke, Best Actress, highlighted the Junior 
cast. After this victory and more rehearsals, 
they will head for the Regional Play Competi- 
tion.

Although the Senior play did not 
win, it displayed an abundance of 
acting talent. Dean Hughes re- 
ceived the Runner-up Actor 
award; Jean Robbins and Pam 
Hunde received Honorable Men- 
tion. 




The Sophomores presented "Rid- 
ers to the Sea", a drama about a 
woman who lost four of her sons 
to the sea. Judy Nickolls por- 
trayed the old woman so well she 
won an Honorable Mention. Ro-

ter, also won an Honorable 
Mention.

Another undefeated season! This team is invincible, hut that's no 
wonder— with five laps around the track every day and Miss Dunn's 
vigorous exercises, it was hard to he anything hut physically (it. The 
toil and sweat paid off in the end though, when they defeated 
South Hadley 3-0. Through mud, soggy grass and half of a baseball 
diamond, they conquered the opponent in the true Falcon style. In 
this same manner they outran and out-scored every other team 
they played in a most successful season. Here's hoping that next 
year's team will he as great!

Girls' Swim Team Reigns as Western Mass. Champs 



Nov. 22, 1967— FLASH . . . Minnechaug Girls' Swim Team be- 
comes first Western Mass. Champions. The determined and high 
spirited Falcons, with a 5-1 dual meet record, put their well-bal- 
anced attack to the supreme test yesterday and as a result, reign as 
Western Mass. Champions. Led by first place medalists, Pam Can- 
ney, Sue Elwell, Lissy Sullivan and Carol Bntterworth, the Falcons' 
depth made them unbeatable. This young team overcame all pre- 
season odds when they conquered Longmeadow and West Spring- 
field, two teams they had been unable to defeat in the past. With a 
tremendous effort and victory at the Western Mass. Swim Champi- 
onships, the Falcons climaxed their most successful season ever.

Despite the poor weather at the South Hadlev game, the Drill Team marched and completed their routine with the Minnechaug "M" 



The uniform of the Girls' Drill Team changed this year, from black to 
green sweaters and knee socks and from sneakers to saddle shoes. With 
a change in uniform came a change in the team's activities. Besides 
marching at football games, they also sold refreshments at the conces- 
sion stand to finance their new uniforms; and the senior members 
helped to make the thermometer in the Band's routine that included 
the song "Heat Wave ". With V's, wheels, gates, M's, diamonds, circles 
and the Drill Team kick they entertained all. Keeping with the Christ- 
mas spirit at the Alumni game in December, the Drill Team made a 
genuine Christmas tree complete with tinsel and a star. They then did 
their rockette-type kick and finished by turning around, flipping up 
their skirts and spelling out MERBY CHBISTMAS on the back of their 
bloomers.

Some of the qualities of a winning team can !>e seen in 
these pictures of the Falconettes in action. 



The Celtics were in good standing; even too busy to come 
cheer for Minnechaug's Falconettes. But the '68 girls' team 
was not to be denied. With co-captains Betty Misiaszek 
("Star") and Chris Rudy as leading seniors, the twelve girls 
displayed remarkable skill and togetherness backed by a 
tremendous amount of team and school spirit. Sandy 
Ciecko, as manager, and Mrs. Bolduc, as assistant coach, 
were a part of this spirit that pushed the Falconettes to an 
undefeated season and a spot in the West. Mass. Tourney. 
Much of this success can be contributed to the early morn- 
ing practices and a coach named Miss Dunn— both rare 
for anv team.

It seemed to be the thing to do. Every team was get- 
ting something new, so the Varsity Cheerleaders went 
all out and got green and white checked jump suits. 
But the uniform was just the beginning. In an effort to 
promote the overall spirit, the Cheerleaders spent the 
fall and winter seasons creating green and white days, 
slogan buttons, and pep rallies for the school to enjoy. 
Miss Weatherby was great and a new kind of indepen- 
dence and importance was felt by the '68 Cheerleaders 
as they were allowed to function as a ten girl booster 
club.

JV Season . . . 



The 1967 fall season was one of indisputable inter-

in carrying on a spirit campaign for the successful 
teams they cheered. But they did more than cheer. 
Those hot dogs you ate along with coffee or coke 
at the football games were sold by the J.V.'s, and 
many thanks are in order to captain Anne McCaf- 
frey and novice coach Miss Weatherby for their 
fine leadership of a fine group of girls.

Sporting new white gymsuits, the girls willingly 
assisted the Physical Education Department in 
many ways, ranging from taking attendance to ref- 
ereeing and supervising athletic events. In addi- 
tion, for the first time they sold the programs you 
purchased at the home football games. Thanks to 
Miss Cascio and Miss Dunn for their help in mak- 
ing this year's Girls' Leaders Corp an organization 
that has been of service and value to others.

Wooster. Frosh Steve Fuqua and 
Harry Meikeljohn showed prom-

improved as the season progressed. The team emphasized a strong season finish with an impressive 4 to 
win over Monson. In a post-season game with the W. Mass. tourney-hound Technical High soccer team, 
our team again showed their potential strength that ensures the returning 14 lettermen and the school a most 
successful season for next year. Special recognition went to Co-captains Dave Gilson and John Jenkins, who

Much Spirit Shown in South Hadley Game 



Although the Falcons won just one game this year, (19-6) against Commerce, they did gain a lot from this 
'67 season. This year the problem was experience. The Falcons now have developed a depth and talent for 
the '68-'69 season, forecasted by this year's spirited South Hadley game. Though this game was lost score- 
wise, (33-6), the Falcons demonstrated a spirit and team unity which was far superior to any seen prior to 
that Saturday.

Falcon Courtmen End With Strong Season- 
Tourney Bound 



Though this year's varsity team didn't have a 
winning record, they had one of the best team 
efforts in Minnechaug history. The team did 
break one school record and broke it twice. In 
both battles with Palmer, the Falcons strug- 
gled to the highest-scoring losing game. Even 
with many games decided by just a few 
points, the stubborn courtmen pulled the big- 
gest upset in two years and determined the 
Valley Wheel winner with a 52-49 win over 
Agawam. This year's team's strong finish and 
high potential will be tested when the Minne- 
chaug hoopsters compete in the Western 
Mass. Small Schools Tournament. With two 
juniors and one sophomore of this year's start- 
ing team returning with promising J.V. skill 
and depth, next year's team will be in strong 
contention for the Valley Wheel Champion- 
ship.

With the number of first-year players on this year's Junior Varsity 
team, it was an experience-gaining season. The success of the team 
is clearly seen by the continuous progress the team made as the 
season progressed. This year's team upset the long streak of losses 
to Ludlow with a one-point victory when Jodie Twining sank an 
outside shot with five seconds left in the game. Under the direction 
of Coach Whalen, the J.V. Falcons overcame a 17 point deficit at 
East Longmeadow and inspired the fans with wins over Enfield and 
undefeated Agawam.

Jerry Badger and Mr. Harold Miller who were an 
ever-present and continuing symbol of guidance to 
the boys. The biggest upset of the year was against 
Chicopee Comprehensive. In this late season meet, 
the Falcons were able to score against the favored 
team and win by a slight margin. The team had a 
record of 8-5, and placed fifth in W. Mass.

Class Of 1968 



TO THE CLASS OF 1968 

During the past four years, I 
have enjoyed watching you 
grow as a class and as individ- 
uals. Your high academic 
achievement, leadership, and con- 
tinual efforts in athletic competi- 
tion have been a constant source 
of pride to all who know you and 
are associated with Minnechaug 
High School. 

I hope that for each of you the

The Swing Band Show 
Draws Standing 
Ovation— March 1, 2 





Jean Robbins, Denise Mediavilla, and Joe Sullivan sing "Find 
Yourself a Man", from Funny Girl. 



Judv Clark sings "Somewhere Mv Love" from 
Doctor Zhivago. 



The boys' chorus line danced their way into the hearts of the audience. The boys' chorus line— Barrv 
Morgan, Chuck Poland, Eli Zaret, Craig McCauley, David Gilson, Duncan Hannah, Ron Garden, Doug 
Richter, and Bob McCarthy. 





The Swing Band, the dominant force in the show, was made up 
of Raymond Vakel, Dennis Giokas, Thomas Fogg, Stanley Ten- 
erowicz and George Lemieux on saxes; trumpeters James Dam 
oulakis, David Czohara, Peter Snow and Michael Sullivan: on 



trombones George Riggs, Alvan Richmond and Edwin Thrasher; 
drummers David Fritz and David Nieske; Man Richmond bass; 
guitar Jeffrey Levesque and William Ingle on piano. 



The Swing Band Show, a smashing success with audience and critic 
alike, combined the talents of individuals with those of a select sec- 
tion of the band. The first act showed the elite of Minnechang's 
musicians, such as the Boys' Chorus. The soloists, Judy Clark and 
Paula Kmetz and folksingers Karen Hamilton and David Christo- 
pher showed Minnechaug at its best. Act two was an excerpt from 
the Broadway play Funny Girl, starring Pamela Hunde, Denise 
Mediavilla, and James Garneau. This part of the Swing Band Show 
featured both the acting and musical talents of Minnechang's finest 
performers. The Swing Band Show was yet another success for Mr. 
Beeler and the already illustrious Music Department. A special 
thanks to Mrs. Kimberly for her direction of this and many other of 
this years dramatic productions.

Don Baineau broke Minnechaug's Tiger Leaping rec- 
ord by jumping over twelve men piled on the long 
horse. 




Captain Don Babineau performed on the parallel 
bars with the same ease and perfection that carried 
him through the season. 




The end of the show featured various tableaux made 
by selected gymnasts painted silver. This one is 
called "Bondage and Freedom". 



Captains Pam Canney and Don Babineau led the 
Grand March which opened this year's gymnastics 
show. The team offered rapid-fire vaulting, tiger 
leaping, and a square dance interrupted bv hand- 
springs and round-offs. Two familiar clowns 
brought down the house with a riotous parallel 
bars routine. The exciting night ended with a ser- 
ies of tableaux dramatically representing the spirit 
of Minnechaug. Under the direction of coaches 
Cascio, Mills, Kober and Rainey, the resulting ex- 
hibition was a show to be proud of.

Surprising both the team and its coaches, the 
Minnechaug Track Squad posted an excellent 
7-2 record this vear. After having lost man) 
outstanding seniors, they thought that the '68 
season would be spent rebuilding the team for 
the future. A concerted team effort in both run- 
ning and field events boosted the Falcons to 
win over such tough teams as Longmeadow and 
Tantasqua. This season's record is a fine tribute 
to retiring Coach Thompson, who has compiled 
an outstanding 60-6 record in his seven years as 
head track coach.

Tennis Team Loses Two Seniors 



Although the 6-10 record doesn't show it, the '68 
tennis squad worked very hard and throughout the 
season displayed both effort and spirit. Brad Pin- 
ni'v and Gary Pet/old, both four year team mem- 
bers, are a great loss for the team, but they leave 
behind a strong nucleus of underclassmen. With 
some hard work and more good coaching by Mr. 
Whalen and Mr. Logan, the 1969 tennis season 
could produce a better record than this year's.

Golf Team Improves 



Under the leadership of Mr. DeWolf and Mr. Barrv, 
the golf team showed marked improvement over past 
seasons with a 6-10 record. Highlighting the vear was 
Minnechang's first hole-in-one, shot by Bob Wilson. 
Stanley Tenerowicz, Mike Jachvm, and Mark Gibson 
participated in the Western Mass. Individual Tourna- 
ment. Other varsity members were Mourad Meregian, 
Howard Gilson, and Tom McNultv, who kept the 
Faii-way Falcons rolling with consistent shooting.

J.V. Baseball Team Hustles To Seven Wins 



. > 




The J.V. Baseball team had a successful vear, compiling a 
7-5-1 record. Hard work in practice paid off for Coach 
Verani and his team. Though every £ame was a complete 
team effort, the combination of Pete Skrzvniarz and Jeff 
Vanderscoff promises the varsity a good pitching staff in 
the future. Carl Kibbe, Jodie Twining, and Pete Skrzvniarz 
paced the batters. In a game against South Hadley, Ri- 
chard Bargon laid down a suicide squeeze bunt in the sev- 
enth inning to score two runs and give the Falcons a dra- 
matic 4-3 win.

Twenty Four Game Win Streak 



The Falcons, supported by steady pitch- 
ing and fielding, blazed their way to a 
8-5 season. During the season, they upset 
Longmeadow and also broke Ludlow's 
24 game win skein with a stunning 3-2 
win. The team accomplished this by pre- 
senting a new brand of baseball game, 
never before seen at this school. This win 
forced a divisional playoff between Lud- 
low, Longmeadow, East Longmeadow 
and Chicopee for the right to play in the 
Western Mass. Tournament.

Minnechaug's newest sports team ended its second season with 
an excellent record of five wins and one loss. This nucleus of 
girls, including six new starters, was coached by Miss Dunn and 
once again her vigorous training paid off. Pitcher Bettv Misi- 
aszek, the Captain and the only senior on the team, struck out 
14 out of 15 batters, 13 in a row; Denise Gagnier boosted the 
Falcon image with three homeruns. But this is not to say that 
these, and only these, account for the great season. Co-opera- 
tion and a united team effort enabled the girls to trounce all 
their other opponents.

ABOVE: Seniors perform in "String Along 
With Me". LEFT: "Whirlwind" featuring 
Pain Cannev and Dave Gilson. 



Few people realize how much work went into the 
production of the 1968 synchronized swimming 
show. Costumes, narration, and props were only a 
few details contributing to the success of "Reflec- 
tions". Choreography was done entirely by the 
girls; routines ranged from the wild "Westward 
Ho" to the traditional "Pomp and Circumstance". 



The girls worked hard on all their routines, but as 
usual, they managed to turn this work into fun. 
"Fun" included stuffing their clothes with foam 
from the track high jump pit, hanging "Flash" 
(Dave) Cilson's sign in the girls' dressing room, and 
tossing Coach Cascio in the pool fully clothed.

The entire east is relieved and sinilin<' during the curtain call. 



Once everv three years, Minnechaug students pre- 
sent a broadway musical. This year's "The Sound 
of Music" was a fantastic success. Pam Hunde, 
Dave Hebert, and Sue Burt played their roles ex- 
ceptionally well; but without the help of Mrs. 
Kimberly, Mr. Killain, Miss Redfield, and the tech 
theater staff, the plav would not have received 
such an enthusiastic response. Standing ovations 
and fan letters all were a part of the tremendous 
and praiseworthy production. Congratulations to 
all involved!
